Top luxury long-haul destinations

Beach in Florida

Going on holiday should always be something of an adventure and when you decide to visit a destination that involves a long haul flight, it really feels like you are getting away from it all.

Club Med offers opportunities to take fantastic holidays all over the world. These are three of the top luxury long-haul destinations you can choose from.


The region of Florida around the city of Orlando is a popular choice for many different reasons.

A big part of the attraction is the fact that it is the warmest state in the United States of America because it has a subtropical climate. This means that the average daily temperature is 70 degrees and that there is virtually guaranteed good weather all year round. It’s no surprise that Florida lives up to its nickname of the “Sunshine State”!

Of course, there are also so many places to visit and sights to see, including Walt Disney World Resort theme park, the shopping malls of Orlando city and the vast natural wonders of the Everglades National Park.


Long haul holidays mean discovering new places and Mauritius has been building a great reputation as a holiday destination for discerning travellers for many years now.

Just off the Southeast coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean, the island’s famous clear blue seas and perfect sandy beaches make it a strong contender for any holidaymakers looking for a sun-kissed beach break. Five-star luxury in Mauritius is easy to find and Club Med have some of the best resorts on the island at locations such as La Plantation d’Albion and Albion Villas.


The Maldives is actually a nation made up of over 1,000 small islands – making it one of the most dispersed countries in the world. Tourism to the islands only really began in the early 70s, which means that in many ways, it is still an unspoilt, luxury destination.

Only around 200 of the 1,100 islets that make up the Maldives are actually inhabited and the equatorial tropical climate means there is quite a variation in the monthly rainfall levels. In short, this means that you can have a different kind of experience depending on which time of year you visit and exactly where you go. It’s perfect for those who live by the idiom that ‘variety is the spice of life’!
